Lakeshore Records: The Call [2013] - John Debney

The Call [2013]
Music by: John Debney

Released By: LAKESHORE RECORDS

When veteran 911 operator, Jordan (Halle Berry), takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl (Abigail Breslin) who has just been abducted, she realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl's life.

“There is a central emotional theme of sorts which highlights the emotional arc between Halle and Abigail. The theme or string motif presents itself about 3 times in the film,” described Debney.  “I wanted to create an overall soundscape however. One at once disturbing and unsettling. Harsh and jarring. Animalistic and suspenseful. That is how I would best describe the approach.”
 
5/5 Here is one of those things I have to choose from the trailer that I see and the score I am listening to, sometimes I try to give you a little about both just so you know. I know that Debney's work is great as always he brings emotion into each track building the ideas of suspense and intrigue. He takes a turn with his normal style and gives us "disturbing" and he does... you will be disturbed.

The previews for this movie definitely have me intrigued. I'll probably end up seeing it.
